This was what I ment in fact. :-) I can now describe the behaviour more 
detailed: It happens with mails with HTML (aka Content-Type: 
multipart/alternative with  text/plain and text/html part). These mails 
are not distorted at seems, which make sense to me. If you select 
multiple text/plain-mails together with a HTML mail, the concatenation 
in the Message View shows the text/plain part of this mail undistorted. 
That is was the first mail was just an accident and is irrelevant.

In fact, I don't know if this is really a relevant issue at all, you 
decide ;-)
